When I’m taking a course, I always take it upon me to write 1-3 ‘GOOD’ questions to ask my teacher every lesson. 

This self-directed learning practice has served me wonderfully over the years, because it

• serves as a constant reminder that MY PROGRESS is ultimately MY RESPONSIBILITY


• it has been guiding me to consistently ‘TRACK’ my learning, see if I can uplevel my game in any way, make the most of the course, etc.

In your opinion what’s a ‘GOOD’ question? Have you asked one from a teacher/trainer of yours recently?
